January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. I wanted to start a fundraiser in honor of my Mom. Since her diagnosis in November 2018 she has endured surgery, multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, remission, recurrence and metastasis of the cancer cells. It has been a very long and grueling fight.
But she has never given up. She has always had Faith and Hope for a cure. She is thriving the best way she knows how. Even when she gets knocked down; she gets right back up (sometimes quicker than others).
I love my Mom more than words can say. To say this cancer has broken me would be an understatement. She has always been there for me whether I was a child needing her Mom or a grown adult still needing her Mom. She has always been a phone call away.
We need to find an end to Cancer. We need to help other families so they don't have to go through what our family is going through. Every donation goes towards finding that hope we so desperately need and want.
Please donate today in honor of my beautiful, brave warrior mother Joanne Maxwell.
*I plan on surprising her next month on her 70th birthday with a plaque with all the donation information (names of donors and total amount collected)*
